Opened on June 6, 1958 with Glenn Ford in “Cowboy” & Jack Lemmon in “Operation Mad Ball”. The Seekonk Family Drive-In was located on Route 6 in Seekonk. Traveling east from the Rhode Island border, it was on your right, in an area now populated by shopping outlets and strip malls. A second screen was added on June 22, 1966. It was closed at the end of the 1990 season.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is currently occupied by a shopping plaza.

After 40 years I have reconnected with my high school sweet heart. We were discussing movies one night. I seem to recall going with her to the “Twin” back around 1970/71, to see “Joe” and “Night of The Living Dead.” I want to say the were both playing the same night. Does anyone recall this and am I correct. I also seem to recall seeing “Willard” there at some point. I miss the place. As high schoolers we had some fun times there………….jeff, Greene, RI

This place was part of my childhood. I worked there in 1979. BEST summer job ever. I miss drive ins but mostly the Twin “SEE” screen and the “KONK screen. I also miss the Baystate along with the rest of Seekonk before 1980. I think member smed55(DAVID) above was my manager. There was an assistant manager then at that time as well. Everyone there were nice.
